Sorry. I just don't know what might be important!

I am running everything locally, and my system was fine for days, then
this suddenly started. I made no configuration changes. In fact, from
the same virtual terminal I ran a sql script with 

	psql -f createschema.sql

which ran fine. I then ran my next script in sequence, which inserts
some static data into some of the tables, and that script aborted. So
I doubt it is a configuration issue.

I checked using "ps -A | grep postmaster" and it was running. Then I
ran ps again and postmaster is still running under the same pid.
